At the Halloween store this weekend and got our pre-schooler a Fireman’s outfit. Didn’t plan on him being a fireman. We weren’t sure what he’d be interested in. You see, earlier in the day we went with a friend to the area park. There just so happened to be a festival going on and a firetruck was there. BINGO! That’s a pre-school jackpot. Not only did my son get to go in a real-deal fire truck, but the fireman gave him a Fire Chiefs hat.
Ironically today, all this talk of firefighters brought me to the Mom blog, Stop, Drop and Blog where I learned that it’s Fire Prevention Week 2008. Although the week is half over, it’s never too late to share insights on how to prepare your home for a possible fire.
From the National Fire Protection Agency Web site:
Your home should be a safe haven. But do you regularly check for home fire hazards? If not, there is the potential for danger. Fire departments responded to nearly 400,000 home fires in 2006. Thatâ€™s why the theme of Fire Prevention Week 2008 is â€œItâ€™s Fire Prevention Week: Prevent Home Fires!â€
Do your family a favor this week and read over how to prepare for a fire. You neve rknow when one could strike.
